Size: A Consideration
When I began my fascination with linear graphics I kept my designs small so one could hold them in their hands to read the elongated lettering. My resin sculptures were also small so people could hold them or easily move around them.
Years ago, before the advent of NFT’s, a friend suggested that I go big. She thought art work was much more impressive in a large format. Unfortunately that posed a problem. My work needs to be read on a horizontal plane. As I revealed in My Story, that issue plagued me for thirty-five years until I finally solved the problem.
I have produced some large pieces. One of my designs is six feet by six feet. But another issue comes into play when considering minting an NFT. Uploading files with very large dimensions is time consuming and in some cases file size is limited by the the platform on which you are selling.
When I mint an NFT, it will be a smaller size, like a 16″ x 16″. The piece will display nicely on an electronic wall frame. I will also deliver to the collector the full size digital file from which the smaller NFT was derived. That way, if they have a large frame, they will have the high resolution file to display. In addition, they need the larger file to reveal hidden images. I can still produce the large physical prints that would be displayed in a traditional gallery. That should work out well for both of us.
